McKinley Village, Sacramento, CA

Project Case Study

McKinley Village

Sacramento, California

McKinley Village is a 49 acre infill development located in Sacramento between the existing communities East Sacramento and Mid-Town Sacramento. Development of the site has several constraints that made development of the site challenging including; the UPRR mainline tracks border the site on the south elevated on a berm 30 feet above the site, Business-80 Freeway borders the site on the north, utilities do not serve the site and there is only one existing access via a 1954 bridge over Business-80 Freeway. Wood Rodgers provided land planning, entitlement processing, civil and geotechnical engineering and surveying services. The project includes 336 residential units including 24 condominium units, four lot sizes from 2,600 to 4,000 square feet, a community recreation center, 3 park sites and 6 pocket parks. Infrastructure design included a railroad undercrossing to establish primary roadway access, widening the existing 1954 bridge overcrossing of Business-80 Freeway, a new roadway across a closed landfill site, two drainage detention basins, a drainage pump station and force main outfall, a sewer lift station, surge tank and force main outfall, permitting with Caltrans and UPRR to improve an existing at-grade railroad crossing and 9 UPRR crossing permits.
